2011 citec 3000 s aero wheelset   2011 Citec 3000 S Aero Wheelset

Citec, a German company, offers a less mainstream choice this 2011 in the wheelset category with the new 3000 S Aero. As compared to other wheels of similar price, the weight of the 3000 S Aero is reasonable with the front weighing 700g and the rear 890g. With 14 at the front and 16 at the rear, the spokes are bladed and straight-pull all over.

Very impressive, the well-made hubs run slick on the road with oozing quality. With a slight flex evident, the wheels can quick rise to speed and perfectly perform. The rims that are only 27mm deep make the wheels less vulnerable to side winds.
